Donavon Frankenreiter wrote this song with Jack Johnson, who produced his self-titled debut album and also performed on this track. In a Songfacts interview
, Frankenreiter said, "I wrote that on a boat in Indo when I was around 28-29 years old. It was reworked when I had a chance to record it and re-write it with Jack Johnson - together we came up with the final version of the song. It's one of my favorites for sure."
